Die Büchse der Pandora

G.W. Pabst Germany, 1929

Graveyard Poet's rating of the film Pandora's Box

Louise Brooks embodies the "flapper" spirit of her Lost Generation in this sexually charged and erotic silent melodrama ahead of its time in its depiction of the divide between men and the feminine psyche. It tragically ends in the Depression setting winter slums of Soho during Christmas time.
